    I started Rippetoe's Starting Strength a little longer than two months ago. Lately I've been noticing some lower back pain, just to the left of my tail bone. I don't get any pain when I'm in the...

    WBB 1.1 or Rippetoe's for a beginner?

    I'm pudgy and don't have a lot of muscle mass. I started working out 4 x a week about four months ago, but I was just dicking around on whatever machines I felt like doing that day. About two...
